8th Panhellenic Philosophical Essay Competition for high school students: Language and Passions




Department of Philosophy, University of Patras, supported by CHS Greece and Panhellenic Association of Philologists, under the aegis of the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs

Synopsis of the event:

Following the first phase of the contest that takes place in various places around Greece, its final round is organized at the University of Patras. Out of hundreds of participating senior high school students, the best ones–approximately 20 students–qualify in this final round. The top two students represent Greece in the International Philosophy Olympiad that takes place in late spring, at a different country every year. CHS Greece played an important role in the establishment of the contest in 2012. The Center continues to support the contest every year and also offers book prizes to the winners.
